I have watched the first few shows and liked them. However, I find his estimates totally unbelievable. Having been a homeowner for 28 years and gotten multiple bids at various times on redoing bathrooms, kitchens, roofs, painting, moving walls, redoing floors, etc, his estimates are laughable. Or else they are the greatest deal around. (Maybe as part of the show, they have a charity aspect to help the people featured?!!)
I live in the USA, so unless Canadian home contractors are paid about 1/3 of what US workers are, I don't believe those estimates. At the moment, the US dollar trades for about $1.25 Candian dollars so that makes it even more unrealistic.
As a matter of fact, even though I like the show, the completely unrealistic nature of his cost estimates annoys me enough that I might not continue to watch it.
